Amazing, we already have some approved OWL Lite testcases with
owl:intersectionOf and named classes and unnamed restrictions

<http://www.w3.org/2002/03owlt/cardinality/Manifest001#test>
<http://www.w3.org/2002/03owlt/cardinality/Manifest002#test>

(for the details, one can also look at
http://www.w3.org/2002/03owlt/editors-draft/snapshot#approvedFunction-cardinality)


Further looking into the testcases, I think we should then also have that

<http://www.w3.org/2002/03owlt/intersectionOf/Manifest001#test>

(after adding some type declarations in it) is then Lite
or that

===OWL Lite entails===

Is that right???
